Memcached is a distributed memory object caching system, which has been gaining in popularity in recent years due to its efficiency. It’s used to cache requests and responses between a database and the application that uses it, which can enhance the overall performance of your site and decrease the generated server load significantly. Anytime a webpage on an app-driven Internet site is accessed, the application connects to the database and "asks" what information should be shown, and then drags it. With Memcached, these procedures are omitted, since the platform has already cached all the content that should be shown on a given page. In case any content is updated, the Memcached content is updated as well, so the visitors will never end up seeing outdated data. The platform is a perfect solution for any site that draws numerous viewers, since it will make it load much faster and will improve the user experience.
Memcached in Cloud Hosting
You can use the Memcached caching system with all Linux cloud hosting that we are offering. It is available as an optional upgrade, which you can acquire with just a few clicks through your Hepsia website hosting Control Panel. It requires a PHP extension, which is pre-installed on our cloud web hosting platform, so you can begin using Memcached the moment you order it. The upgrade is separated into two parts, which will give you more flexibility depending on the Internet sites that you’d like to use it for. The first one specifies the number of the sites that will use Memcached, or the ‘instances’, whereas the second one refers to the system memory, i.e. to how much content Memcached will be able to cache. You can order more system memory in increments of 16 MB and the more memory you have, the more content will be cached, which may be an exceptionally good idea for busy websites with very large databases and lots of simultaneous visitors. Thus, you can optimize the speed of every script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers effortlessly.
Memcached in Semi-dedicated Hosting
You can add the Memcached data caching platform to any of the Linux semi-dedicated hosting offered by our company and make use of its full capacity for any script-powered Internet site hosted on our servers. The upgrade is available through the Hepsia hosting Control Panel and you can choose two features – the number of instances and the memory. These things specify how many sites can use Memcached and the amount of memory that it will use to store your data. You can choose them separately, since one instance is not tied to a particular amount of system memory, so you can use lots of memory for one popular site, for instance. This feature comes in increments of 16 megabytes and you can order as much memory as you wish. The platform can be used with any script-powered site irrespective of its nature, including those based on widespread applications like Joomla, Drupal or WordPress, and lots of companies like Wikipedia and Zynga are already using it to improve the speed of their websites.
Memcached in Dedicated Hosting
When you obtain any of our Linux dedicated hosting and if you choose Hepsia as your website hosting Control Panel on the order form, you’ll get the Memcached caching platform by default and you can set it up for each Internet site that you host on your dedicated server without upgrading or installing anything. It will begin storing content as people open your Internet site, so you’ll notice the effect of using it soon after that. The minimum amount of memory that will be available to the Memcached platform is 3 GB and normally, the more powerful the dedicate server plan, the more memory Memcached will have at its disposal. This amount will permit you to use the platform for lots of websites or for an extremely popular website without weakening its efficiency. The Memcached caching platform will permit you to enhance the load speed of any database-powered Internet site very quickly – a Joomla portal, a WordPress personal diary, an OpenCart e-store, etc., and to improve the performance of your dedicated server.
